I finally got all my squares cut and today found time to start putting some of these squares together. It is fun to do as you have to sew some of these different colours and different size squares together. I'm making the lap size quilt, so it takes a lot of squares for Mr. Snowman's picture. This picture looks like the background should be a kind of mauve to purple color, but the pattern calls for blues and blacks. I did find a batch of pretty blue materials, so I'm anxious to do it up.
DH and I worked outdoors this morning as the weather was still sunny and plus 3 degrees C. We needed to put a new tarp on one side of the tarp building. We just store wood for the snowmobile club and other junk in there so it does not need to be fancy. One of the snowmobile clubhouse is located behind our property only about 3 km. away and our tarp building is handy for them to store their wood.
Our cove was covered with ice yesterday, but the winds picked up in the night and with the temperatures rising a bit and the action of the waves, this morning the ice was just about gone. Very little of the ice was left and what was left was around the edge at the very end of the cove. Yesterday, DH and I saw a big bald eagle who had landed on a spot of ice and he was having his breakfast. It was too far away for us to make out what he was eating. What a beautiful bird!
Everyone have a great evening and a great day tomorrow!
